Two Researchers Disprove Government Geoengineering Initiatives Demonstrating They Do Not Reduce Climate Change
December 6, 2013 | Geoengineering | K.Bergman
Many geoengineering techniques are focused on ways of reducing the sun’s rays by blocking them spraying chemical compounds into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from earth. At least this is the claim by government scientists justifying global operations of this kind to reduce climate change and global warming. However, two German researchers are debunking the claim using a simple energy balance analysis to explain how the Earth’s water cycle responds differently to heating by sunlight than it does to warming due to a stronger atmospheric greenhouse effect.

Thank Your Grandmother For Advancing Human Civilization
December 4, 2013 | Sustainability | K.Foster
Grandmothers and grandchildren are natural allies. They have the most important thing in common. Namely, the one in between, the baby's parent and grandmother's child. Having grandmothers put on their aprons, pitch in, and fill in the spaces left by busy working parents is not just a nicety, but may actually have helped us to advance as a species. Let’s hear it for the critical contributions of the post-menopausal segment of our community!

Study Exposes The Exact Effect of Energy Drinks On The Heart
December 3, 2013 | Toxins | N.Longo
Energy Drinks have been found to cause irreversible damage to tooth enamel and detrimentally affect the contraction of the heart.

Consumption of Milk As a Teen Not Associated With Stronger Bones And May Actually Increase Fracture Risk
December 2, 2013 | Nutrition | M.Torres
The belief that milk is what builds strong bones is ingrained in our society, but has no based on myths promoted by the dairy industry. Calcium is but ONE of the many minerals your body needs for building strong bones. The calcium in milk is not absorbed by the body and effectively causes osteoporosis rather than prevents it. A recent study published in JAMA Pediatrics, examined the association between teenage milk consumption and risk of hip fracture at older ages in a study of more than 96,000 men and women with a follow-up of more than 22 years and found that drinking more milk as a teenager was not linked to a lower risk of bone fractures as an older adult, and instead appears to increase that risk, according to new research.
